Good Morning! Good Morning!
We've had some interesting clouds...
...drifting across the horizon...
...on these hot, sticky days.
I went over to visit McFamily on Wednesday. While Ian slept Leah and I finished cutting out all the furniture (and some future furniture) paper representatives and played around with floor plans. There's no comparison to the one with den--OMG! I could really have an art and craft room!
It would be similar to how I live now with the regular one-bedroom. I'd even have to put a couple of bookcases in the pantry--LOL!
No matter what--the curio cabinet was another piece of furniture I wondered about getting rid of and there was never extra space for it, so that will go, too. Amazingly I would have room for the triple dresser in the bedroom in either. Bigger bedroom. But there's less actual wall space elsewhere because here I have the half wall between the kitchen and the living room and have a hallway and an entryway. But with the den...ahhh! Perfection!!
Now I can really visualize! Miss Karma would have her fancy cat box under the bedroom window. I would fix her up a place to lounge right on top of it where she could (hopefully) see out the window. Of course, sliding glass doors to the balcony would give her a good view, too. And I guesstimated the size of a loveseat with a recliner built in so that (besides Karma) a little grandboy could come up and sit right next to me. Wouldn't that be nice?
Anyways, Ian woke up. Mama fed him. Then he had playtime...kicking feet and swinging arms.
And now (gift from somebody Dagan works with) he gets propped up on this colorful mat to do some belly time.
That triangular thing there has a mirror on it!
Ian does pretty well lifting that big, heavy head of his for a while.
Can watch the other baby. What fun!
But exhausting fun. That head is a lot of work to heft about...
...so he chews and sucks on the bracelet-type toys on his wrists. (I've never seen those before--cool!)
Meanwhile, at home...Karma was catching a few rays one morning when we actually had some. (Been clouded over half the time.) I called her name...
What do you want? Oh, just the camera? Not treats? Or anything even remotely interesting to me?
Geez! I'm trying to take a nap here.
Leah's going to cut Dagan's hair tonight so I plan to make a trip over so she can trim mine, too, at the same time. I plan to put up the lift chair on freecycle this weekend. I started going through all the files already. Been watching Boardwalk Empire. Expect more episodes in the mail today. It's a grey, blanketed, dark day. Rained during the night and we expect more light rain...in fact, could be drizzling now. The humidity is higher than the temperature. Perfect day to putter inside. ;)
Enjoy your weekend!!
Don't forget to dream big!
